First of all, I would call this book a cheap knock-off of Andrea R. Cremer's Nightshade, but it seems this book was published first. Anyways, first of all, I found the writer's style rather strange. Perhaps it was just me, but she seemed to use a lot of strange adjectives without actually describing Vivian's surroundings very much. Secondly, the sexual content in this book is most certainly not safe for your granny. Nothing was described too outright, but I know some of you won't appreciate the frequent innuendos. Also, Vivian's character irritated me; she is selfish, rude, and nearing mean at the beginning. And if I had a nickel for every time she gave someone the finger...

By about page 70, though, I was curious about how the author would pull this off. Which brings me to the part about the ending darkmanifest's post summed up quite well. The author (and the character) seem to give up on all they had worked on throughout the story and simply make the easiest choice for their future. Any other author wouldn't have thrown the plot to the side like that, but Klause is different than "any other author".

If you do decide to give it a try, I suppose it's small, so it won't waste too much time. Just be sure to keep it away from your granny.
